Our group enjoyed this tour. We traveled on a sunny warm day and got great views of the area. Wish our tour guide knew more of the history about the places we passed during our bus ride.
Keep in mind the price paid to book the tour does not include the entrance to the Ice Cave. There were several people that were surprised they had an additional fee.

Much more difficult climb than we expected, but well worth the climb!

WOW the views from the top and chairlift stop are to die for especially on a beautiful day, take your camera, inside the cave included a guided tour, but done in oil lamp and flares, no electricity, and a lot of walking up the hill from the chairlift and over 300 steps inside bad heart stay away

You really do need a certain levle of fitness as it is a long walk uphill to the entrance to the cave and then lots of steps inside, but providing you are fit enough it is certainly well worth the visit. The views over the country side from the mountain are beautiful.

The views were great. However be warned that once you are in the ice cave NO pictures are allowed. The tour guide at the ice cave who is required to lead you through the cave kept screaming at people to not take pictures. He was very rude but had nothing to do with the tour guide that was with us the majority of the time.
This is very disappointing since the hike to see the inside of the cave is very strenous and at the very least a picture inside would have made me happier. There are however many photo ops on your hike up to the cave. This is a physically demanding hike and not everyone in our tour made it to the ice cave. The cave is very cold inside so bring warm clothes although on the walk up to the cave we were hot.

Beautiful inside. Make sure you are fit enough. Walk about 25 min uphill and then 700 stairs up in the cave and 700 down. When you are inside beautiful. Worth it

Interesting but be aware of an additional charge (10 euros per person, cash only, collected by the guide prior to departure). I didn't get exactly the reason but, i believe that he was mentioning something about a highway toll or similar.
